"Four kids? You must be so busy/crazy/tired!"



So, I have, by far, the cutest kids in the entire world. I mean, seriously, have you seen cuter? Yeah, yeah. Whatever.

#1 has shorter hair (I did pretty, good, eh?) and is losing her teeth so quickly.

#2 has decided to become a model. Well, only if her singing/acting/perfectly-thought-out-tantrums don't work out. :)

#3 is still getting through those "terrible 2's". But boy, does he just make me want to snuggle him!

#4 smiles constantly, and recently he has attempted the "roll over" (about 10 minutes ago).

P.S. My title is something I'm confronted with constantly here in California. The answer to that questions is "YES! I'm busy/crazy/tired! But I don't care, and did you know I want to have more? Man, how busy/crazy/tired would that be?!?!" I do get sick of complete strangers assuming how I feel. It's annoying...yes! It's annoying! Even if they are right! It's annoying! :)

Cheryl, I think you are AMAZING! Busy/crazy/tired comes with the kid territory whether you have 1 or 10 of them in my opinion. You're a great mom and you're kids are really cute!!!! I can't believe you have 4 now. I remember being in your SS class when Ashley and Miller were babies!!! Time flies!
Love ya!

Okay I just reread what I wrote and the second "you're" should be "your". Sorry! I didn't want you to think I didn't know what I was doing. Just typing too fast.

tania-
awesome! I'm so glad you read my blog; time does fly by so much! How are you guys up in WA?

Hey, btw, for future comments, could you refrain from using any of my kids' names? I'm trying to keep it fairly anonymous because of all those psychos out there... (and don't worry about your above comment, anyone who doesn't know me will not know which child belongs to me). :)

Very cute kidlets! I know, I get those comments too. I think you get them even more when one of them is baby age. Or they're running around Wally World playing jungle gym. But I wouldn't know that from experience. LOL

Oh, they're so cute! I'm not going to look too long, because it might make me want a couple of my own.

Also--I loved My Name Is Asher Lev.

And good luck getting through the ppd.

You're probably so tired of it already, but it will only get worse! When we lived in MI I had people come up and ask why I was pregnant with #3, because I already had 1 boy and 1 girl, as if that's the goal of having kids is to get one of each! Unbelievable! I also had a friend who was in a bank with her 3 little ones, pregnant with #4 and had a man ask her if she knew that there was a prevention for that (pointing to her tummy). Some (ok...a lot) of people just don't get it! And I hate to say it, but I think CA is especially unforgiving. My SIL lived there when she had just 6 (now has 8) and got asked ALL THE TIME if she ran a daycare or something. But isn't it great to be able to turn to people who ask those questions and respond positively and with enthusiasm about how much you love it and wouldn't want it to be any other way!?

Love you, Cheryl!
